Well I did make a 2 lb loaf yesterday of Hibiscus Kombucha soap. Wow, this is only my 3rd batch of soap and I think that it turned out beautiful. I am waiting to take it out of the mold, it was poured yesterday at 2:00 PST. I checked it this am and it looks beautiful. So here was the experience, I did a CP of the following; 20% CO, 25% Lard, 10% AO, 10% Avocado Butter, 30% Canola Oil, 5% Castor with 38% Water and a SF of 7%. My skin is suffering from the effects of Chemo so I want a conditioning soap. I used my Kombucha at 60% of my water it was a strong vinegary brew, next time I will use it at 100%. I was scared to use 100% lol, I added 2 tsp salt to the water, I mixed the lye in a ice bath. I soaped at 90 degrees. My batch never went over 98 degrees in the pot, I have no clue what happened in the mold, I was trying to preserve all that Kombucha goodness, lol. Knowing that the kombucha would turn brown I added red rose clay for color. It was slow to trace, but at trace I added my EO. When I poured it was the most delicious looking butterscotch color hoping it does not morph. I will post a picture with the cut when that happens I kinda think from just the feel of it this am, that it might stay in the mold another day, will wait to see! Thanks to everyone here for their advice and support. So glad that I found you! Happy soaping!
